At least if what ails you is an excess of stockinette socks.
The cure entailed knitting:
- one more repeat on the Monkey, which was given a temporary stay of execution by virtue of being a tremendously entertaining knit. Also, everyone but me seemed to think the colors looked fine, so I'm giving it a go.
- 1.5 inches of twisted rib and the first repeat on the Embossed Leaves socks, from Favorite Socks. I don't think it looks anything like the pattern in the book so far, but I'll give it another round because it's awfully fun to knit, and much faster (for me) than the Monkey. Plus my Sockapalooza sock pal's socks certainly won't knit themselves, and I want to give her something pretty.
And that's more than enough moderately challenging knitting for one weekend! It's back to stockinette socks for my commute.
